I have received some sample media from e-net (thanks to e-net for sending it) as well as having gathered some e-net media from other sources as well for reference. I'm going to make an article about their media - and would like some user input before starting on the article.
I want to hear YOUR experience with their media and especially these types of media:
Datawrite 8x DVD+R Printable, media code MCC 003.
Datawrite 8x DVD-R Full-face printable, media code MCC02RG20
Datawrite 8x DVD-R Printable, media code CMC.MAG.AE1
Datasafe 8x DVD-R Printable, media code CMC.MAG.AE1
RitekG05 OEM printable, media code RitekG05.
Other printable media types distributed by E-net (Ridisc, Rivision, Bulkpaq, White label, datasafe, datawrite) is interesting as well.
I'm especially interested in these media types as I've found them to be more or less B-C grade/defective.
For reference - you may take a look at some of my test results with Datawrite printable DVD+R and DVD-R here with media codes from Mitsubishi:
Datawrite DVD+R printable
Datawrite printable 8x DVD-R
The reason for asking is that I want to see how spread this defective media is - and if it's being distributed all over Europe - or only in some areas.
Non-printable regular media test results is welcome too - but so far I've only noticed minor glitches with other media types (scratches, DVD-R media marked and sold as DVD+R media, and some dye defects have been found on a few discs).
Also how would YOU like to see a test of their media presented? There is several ways to do it. One way is to include Media made by the same manufacturer and compare against the media brands distributed by E-net. This is to see if the claims made by some users and competitors is true: E-net media is B/C grade. Maybe this way we could show that E-net media is better or worse than media from other brands?
Verbatim MCC003 vs Datawrite MCC003
Traxdata RITEKG05 vs Ridisc/Datawrite RITEKG05
Verbatim MCC02RG20 vs Datawrite MCC02RG20
Any bright ideas?
I'm also thinking to add PI/PO values from both Lite-On and BenQ, as well as a reading curve from NEC ND-3500AG.
